Back in the day when our family subscribed to Gamepro (the Sega Genesis to PSone era), there was always excitement for the fabled E3. I still don't know what the 3 E's stand for (Entertainment and Expo are two of them), but this event has grown even more legendary, almost like the Comic Con of video gaming. This year, a lot of crazy stuff was announced and displayed, like Microsofts ambitious new motion sensitive controller (except, you don't use a controller!?!?), trailers for FFXIII, and many more Mario games for Nintendo. But the stuff that blew me away the most was NOT the God of War 3 demo (I never played 1 or 2, so I don't care yet), but the demos for Uncharted 2: Among Theives and Assassin's Creed 2.
Instead of just giving us more of the same, the creators of these games went above and beyond to improve graphics, story, gameplay, missions, details, weapons, etc, etc, etc. I haven't been this excited since the Diablo III gameplay footage was unveiled. Watch and love both of these videos.
